A National Security Council (NSC) survey on the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations revealed that over 74 percent of respondents would not be welcoming any guests despite a leeway granted by the government.

Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the survey had attracted 215,712 respondents who were asked three questions on their planned celebration - whether to be kept within immediate family members in one household; to allow visits from close family members; or to welcome extended family members and neighbours.
